Our friends at Guitar World
just published a cool new video featuring Matt Heafy and Corey 'Beaulieu of Trivium performing the title track from Trivium's new album, The Sin and the Sentence
. Check it out below.
Be sure to look for the new Epiphone Ltd. Ed. Matt Heafy 6
"Sn∅fall" Les Paul Custom Outfits at your local Authorized Epiphone Dealer soon and read our exclusive new interview
. "The idea for these guitars started back when we made the 'Silence in the Snow' video," Heafy told Epiphone.com. "We had the original MKH prototypes and we knew we wanted to so do something that was dramatic. So we decided to completely cover them in white paint because the record was Silence in the Snow. It looked really cool."
Heafy designed the new SnØfall 6
and 7-string Les Pauls with Epiphone's luthiers in Nashville. Both Les Pauls are finished in Alpine White Gloss and feature EMG active pickups and come with a Premium Gigbag and Certificate of Authenticity signed by Heafy.
"I remember mentioning them to (Epiphone President) Jim Rosenberg that maybe we could do these guitars in a different paint job. About three months ago, Jim surprised me and said 'Hey I just sent some guitars to your house.' And the next thing I knew, there was this new MKH color --I was totally blown away by it. We have to do this! So we kept it a secret but at the same time we also recorded the new record with them. I used no other guitars during the sessions--strictly Epiphone MKH models. Then we brought the white guitars on tour so we kind of let the guitar out of the bag really early. I just couldn't wait. When I brought out the white guitars, the kids seemed really stoked at those so that was cool."
